My thanks to Herbert for suggesting package fancybox for throwing a box 
around an entire page.  It worked like a charm!

I have a couple of other questions - one is about variables.  How can I 
programatically determine the number of letters in a word?  I'm hoping for 
something like (I'm making this up) $z=LetterCount{some words in here}.  I 
would like to make some macros that could use this functionality.

Is there a good place to read of examples, etc.?

I'm fast discovering that Tex has amazing potential!

Thanks so much!
